Access key scientific datasets in a scalable way

DataHub allows you to enable simple and scalable access to distributed data for computation, and to publish a dataset and make it available to a specific community, or worldwide, across federated sites.



DataHub allows you to bring data close to computing to exploit it efficiently, and to publish a dataset and make it available to a specific community, or worldwide, across federated sites.
DataHub is based on the Onedata technology.

LAGO: Unleashing astroparticle research in Latin America with EGI

LAGO is a collaborative organisation of IberoAmerican institutions operating the Latin American Giant Observatory. The observatory is a network of astroparticle detectors used for high-energy astrophysics, and space weather phenomena research across 10 Latin American countries. Facing data management and resource sharing challenges, EGI stepped in with a combination of services, including the EGI DataHub that empowered LAGO researchers to store, publish, and access crucial data and metadata. The service enabled them to access a 15TB cloud-stored library containing the expected flux of signals produced by more than 1013 cosmic rays showers. This service has been crucial in ensuring the continuity of research programmes in Latin America.
